Right from the get go it was hard to sit there and process everything as a million new (unexpected) things were happening. I managed to avoid so many spoilers, but it was what I feared most that did happen. The entire first half of the film felt like a blatant scrubbing of what I thought was one of the best entries in the franchise... it was distracting to say the least. I did have a good laugh at how Palp's uncontrollable lightning is, yet again, his undoing.
Despite all that and a fanbase I've tried distancing myself from, I'm just grateful we were able to have these movies. It was fun to discuss the countless theories over the years at every Christmas/New Years dinner table.
Happy New Year everyone! Especially spikey teeth Rey
